Busy today, so you didn’t get a post.
In compensation, have some Alaska:
It was about minus twenty Fahrenheit. My son and I were digging giant blocks of ice out of the driveway and moving them with the plow when I looked up and saw this.
The sun was setting and turning the landscape a kind of golden yellow. The air was so cold and clear it was like you could reach out and touch the moon. I grabbed the camera and climbed the hill across from my house and managed to take several dozen shots through the telephoto lens. I didn’t bother with setting the exposure manually, it was too damned cold to fumble barehanded with the camera controls, I just put the Nikon into full auto mode and held down the shutter release with my gloves on.
I posted this earlier today on Facebook and Twitter. For those of you who don’t follow me on social media, well, I wouldn’t want you to think I was neglecting you.
Be patient, actual blog post to follow.
